[protege-owl] 2nd Call for Papers: KR-MED 2008 "Representing and sharing knowledge using SNOMED CT"

Fri Jan 11 11:49:43 PST 2008


The vision of a universal clinical terminology, covering a broad range of health-related domains and meeting the needs of all health professionals has stimulated numerous health informatics research activities in the last two decades.

SNOMED CT® (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine-Clinical Terms) is emerging as a comprehensive, multilingual clinical healthcare terminology, since 2007 under a new international ownership.
KR-MED 2008 will follow up the successful first SNOMED conference organized in Copenhagen in October 2006, and will address health policy makers, clinicians, nurses, system developers, informatics researchers, computer scientists, terminologists and translators.
KR-MED 2008 is also the third event of the AMIA working group KR-MED. It will therefore challenge the current state and the planned roadmap of SNOMED CT development from a perspective of knowledge representation and formal ontologies.

The scope of KR-MED 2008 includes the following areas: 
* Mapping between SNOMED CT and legacy terminologies and classifications 
* Partial/local use of SNOMED 
* Ontological aspects of SNOMED CT 
* Representational Languages and the Concept Model 
* Classifying SNOMED CT 
* Coding reliability 
* SNOMED Quality Assurance and Auditing 
* SNOMED and Information Models: gaps and overlaps 
* SNOMED and archetypes 
* SNOMED and the UMLS 
* SNOMED Viewers and Browsing tools 
* International interoperability 
* Translation issues 
* Terminology and standards 
* SNOMED in life science research 
* Post-Coordination 
* Semantic annotations with SNOMED
